Lucifer - The Good, the Bad and the Crispy TV review

Lucifer‘s Second Season finale wraps up Mum‘s (Tricia Helfer) storyline which was first teased way back in the First Season finale. While Chloe (Lauren German) begins investigating a murder caused by Lucifer‘s (Tom Ellis) mother, the devil spends most of the episode trying to find and convince Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) to restore the sword and push dear old Mum back into Heaven to be their father’s problem. Trouble is, now that Amenadiel knows Lucifer isn’t necessarily God’s favorite son he’s less inclined to help. While this is really just an excuse to draw out an important plot point, it does eventually serve a secondary purpose in the angel finding a way back to something he lost along the way.

Lucifer - Sympathy for the Goddess television review

Leading in to next week’s season finale, “Sympathy for the Goddess” continues the search for the missing piece of the Flaming Sword while Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Chloe (Lauren German) investigate the murder of one of Charlotte Richards‘ (Tricia Helfer) clients. The murder of the week is rather forgettable as the show’s main focus is on character interactions including Lucifer and Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) violently fighting out their disagreements and the demon’s attempts to help Dr. Linda (Rachael Harris) whose relationship with Lucifer has put her professional livelihood in jeopardy. The episode also finally allows Lucifer and Charlotte’s relationship to be known, albeit with a small twist, and seems to contradict itself regarding just who is God’s “favorite” son.

Lucifer - God Johnson television review

I’ve been looking forward to this episode since the moment I heard about the casting. I did have some trepidation as to Lucifer actually exploring God in human form as much of the show’s premise relies on him to be an absentee parent. With “God Johnson” the show’s writers get to have their cake and eat it to while providing both a cathartic reunion of sorts for Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and dear old dad while finding a way to still keep God far removed from the daily life of his son and his Los Angeles shenanigans.

Lucifer - Deceptive Little Parasite TV review

With the pressure of his Mum (Tricia Helfer) and Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) to ignite the flaming sword, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) throws himself into his latest case at a private school which boasts of their program to help students control their emotions. Hoping for a little insight, Lucifer enlists the help of Trixie (Scarlett Estevez) to take a look into just what the school teaches. Although he’s ultimately disappointed in the results, the set-up not only allows the pair to spend some time together (while providing the episode with its title), but it also has the added effect of putting Chloe (Lauren German) and Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) together as Trixie’s two mommies for the dual purpose of catching a killer and possibly getting the girl into the prestigious school.

Lucifer - Candy Morningstar TV review

After an extended hiatus Lucifer finally returns. I’ll be honest, like Chloe (Lauren German) I was irked by Lucifer (Tom Ellis) apparently reverting to form showing up after an unannounced two-week vacation with a bimbette bride (Lindsey Gort) and walking into the police station as if nothing had happened. As the episode unfolded, however, there are aspects of the story that turned out to be better planned than simply resetting the status quo just for the sake of doing so. The hidden nobility of Lucifer’s actions and the truth about just who Candy (Gort) is both continue to build on a character who is far more layered than when Detective Decker first walked in to his bar. The subplot of his Mum (Tricia Helfer) wracking her head attempting to make sense out of such a bizarre action turned out to be an added treat.
